I did a lot of first aid volunteering during my undergraduate degree studying biomedicine. Through that experience, I was able to learn so much about healthcare and I realised that I actually love treating people and interacting with them. This experience also enabled me to work with so many diverse people from such different ages and backgrounds, which inspired me to try pursue study in medicine.
Generally I would start class at about 9 and have a couple of lectures until lunch break, where I have a chance to catch up and hang out with friends. Some days I have prac classes in the afternoon whereas others there may be a few more lectures.
Usually I try to break up my day by going to taekwondo class in the afternoon, especially if I have had a long day of lectures. I might also stay back and study for a bit after training depending on how I feel on the day. Thursdays are a bit different as they are my clinical days, and those are spent at the hospital where I have tutorials and other classes in a clinical setting.
I think I was surprised to still find ways to maintain a balance with hobbies outside of uni, such as continuing taekwondo and returning to drawing more. As I moved out by myself for the first time for this degree, I did not think that I would have the time to maintain this balance.
I love the environment of the campus and all the hidden corners that are waiting to be discovered.
Give new things a go, even if it may seem nerve wrecking! You never know who you could meet or how it could shape your university experience! What you get out of uni depends of what you put in, so go for it!
